For the Program, each zone did a musical number and a Christmas thought.  They were all so good.  After the program, we put on the movie, “Meet the Mormons.”  Many had never seen it before.  As they settled in watching the movie, Santa and his elves went to work getting the gifts ready!2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (137)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (138)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (141)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (143)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (146)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (147)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (152)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (154)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (158)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (163)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (164)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (168)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (173)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (177)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (180)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (182)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (189)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (191)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (193)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (205)Meet the Mormons:2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (215)Santa at work:2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (216)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (218)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (221)Mail and packages from the North Pole:2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (222)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (223)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (224)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (225)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (227)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (229)Hot off the press Newsletters:2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (230)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (231)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (233)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (234)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (237)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (242)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (247)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (250)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (255)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (261)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (264)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (267)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (269)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (270)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (272)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (277)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (280)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (290)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (291)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (304)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (307)Clean up and farewells. . .2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (308)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (310)2015-12-16 CMS Gathering Yakima (315)All of the photos from this day are in an album posted on the Mission FB page.
